A Hex On Your Head Interviews Bogwitch

I sometimes get days where I struggle to find any new music to connect with, and I think to myself the most terrifying of thoughts 'will I listen to anything good ever again?' I decided to take action on this particular day and raced over the Bandcamp, where I stabbed the word WITCH into the… Continue reading A Hex On Your Head Interviews Bogwitch

A Hex On Your Head Interviews Bizarrekult

One of the greatest joys in life, in my humble opinion, is when you find an album with impactful and memorable cover art, and the music on said album is just as impactful and memorable. We all cross our fingers and hope that’ll be the case each and every time our eyes meet a new… Continue reading A Hex On Your Head Interviews Bizarrekult

Hex Of The Day – Sólstafir

Today I have been sore, scared and mostly silent. My mental health has been relatively stable recently, but my physical health - not so much. And soon, there's a possibility I'll find out what the fuck my body has been playing at for the past four months. And I'm terrified.   So, today I turned to… Continue reading Hex Of The Day – Sólstafir

Hex Of The Day – Cave Mouth

I was supposed to write about Sólstafir's song Fjara today. It's a song I've only been able to start listening to again recently, after years of not being able to go near it. The other day I decided it was time I let it take up space in my heart again (well, it never really left,… Continue reading Hex Of The Day – Cave Mouth

Hex Of The Day – Cave Mouth

Meghan and I (your hosts are the witches of the band Cave Mouth, in case you didn't know) made a cover song. It's a stupendously creepy Irish murder ballad called Weile Weile Waile (The Old Woman in the Woods). There's a lot of backstory to the song lurking on the internet, which is well worth… Continue reading Hex Of The Day – Cave Mouth

A Hex On Your Head Interviews Beyond Man

Well, isn’t this fucking something! We got Beyond Man for you. A few weeks ago, I threw an email at Meghan with a link to Beyond Man’s debut album Beyond Man, saying, ‘YOU GOTTA LISTEN TO THIS, IT’S A BEAST!’ She agreed that it was, in fact, a beast, and I screamed at her that I was… Continue reading A Hex On Your Head Interviews Beyond Man

Hex Of The Day – Cave Mouth

The other day saw the release of the new Cave Mouth single The Woods Do Not Want Us Here. (For those of you who don't know, Cave Mouth is mine and Meghan's band.) The song started life with the lyric 'we are in so deep, the birds have stopped singing.' It took a twisty turny path… Continue reading Hex Of The Day – Cave Mouth

Hex Of The Day – Justin Johnson

I've never felt an affinity for the blues. Back in days of yore, my guitar teacher tried for almost a year to get it into my head that the blues was everything, and that it was what I REALLY SHOULD want to be playing, NOT metal, DEFINITELY NOT metal.  My teacher ate, drank, slept the… Continue reading Hex Of The Day – Justin Johnson

Hex Of The Day – Primordial

Just a quick fucking listen to this song post for you today, as my bed is screaming at me to crawl in it. I'll detail in a future post about my infatuation with Primordial, how I came across them back in 2007 and why I think Alan Averill is one of the greatest vocalists and lyricists to… Continue reading Hex Of The Day – Primordial

Hex Of The Day – Sounding Body

I've been unwell this past week and, as a result, haven't been able to get everything done that I needed to, and, as a result of that, have been irritated as fuck.  I wasn't sure what I would share with you good people today, as I've had to concentrate this afternoon on laying out plans for July. It… Continue reading Hex Of The Day – Sounding Body
